As far as the rules are concerned, we the Big East are no different than America East or the Big West. But, in terms of the most important concession, the autobid, we were given respect and status. On other matters, we're generally comfortable with what The Powers That Be want the NCAA to do--rig things for the rich and powerful, which we are.

That's a good way to describe it. We don't have the vote, but we have the respect, and money, of a true Power conference. 04-cheers

I'm not sure I understand the bolded statement. How is getting an autobid, like the other 31 conferences, a "concession"?

We didn't have to go through the 8-year qualifying process for a new conference. The rules were waived because we're royalty, because we got a raw deal in realignment, because the Big East isn't a new one-bid league taking away an at-large, because we maybe had a legal claim to fight the NCAA because we had a reliance interest in the old rules (the Pre-Nup that allowed the Big East to divorce was written based upon the expectation of the old continuity rules) or some combination of those.

Ask the Great West how easy it is to get an autobid.

IMO, it's 99% what I bolded. The current membership is putting forth multiple at-large-worthy teams every year, so giving the NBE a March Madness autobid doesn't affect other teams competing for one of those last at-large spots every year.

It's nice to have some sympathy because of reliance on old rules, or because Big East basketball was great in the 1980s, but that wouldn't be nearly enough if the conference was currently poor at men's hoops.

99% is high, but that's probably the biggest single factor. My point is that the rules were set aside and we got the autobid instead of being sent to Great West purgatory.

How many of the P5 AAU schools think of D3 AAU schools as equals? Schools like M.I.T, Cal.Tech and Chicago State?

Yeah. That is what I meant. University of Chicago.

I read that the Big 10 is lobbying for McGill and University of Toronto to join the NCAA D1. I know they would like Johns Hopkins there besides LAX for the Big 10.

Mcgill plays in the d1 men's club hockey division against the Big 10 teams and others there in the past there. With Simon fraser is hinting to upgrade their club team to be varsity d1. The Big 10 could get into a new tv market that are outside of the US. It seems both schools are thinking about playing varsity men's ice hockey in d1. they both do fit the Big 10 criteria to get into the conference since both are AAUs. It is more about attracting the Canadian players to go to the Big 10 schools. If you are getting Canadian schools interested in playing D1 hockey? It could help the NCAA men and women hockey teams to get some good hockey players from Canada. That is why we are seeing teammates facing each other in men and women's hockey in the Winter Olympics.

Ontario University Women's Club Hockey Joined ACHA


Lakehead's Women Club hockey first canadian Team ranked

It has to do more with Hockey and tv rights to expand into Canada.
University of Toronto over 73,000 enrolled.
McGill University, over 35,000 enrolled.

They are big universities and for the Big 10 profile even if it is for Big 10 Hockey at first.

In the university pecking order, all three of those schools are above almost all AAU P5 schools.

Stanford, Northwestern, Duke and Vanderbilt are probably the only AAU P5 schools that MIT, Cal-Tech, or U. of Chicago would regard as "peers". Maybe Notre Dame, on a day they were feeling nice.

So you went from using "is" to using "could". Try again, kiddo. Fake news from you, as usual.

Neither of those links indicate your previous claim of any B1G member, nor the conference office "lobby" a Canadian university to join the NCAA.

Which other message board did you see someone else's fantasy expansion? 247sports?

Club hockey is a whole different animal than NCAA DI varsity. It’s ridiculous even to compare the two. Canadians often go to the NCAA route now, as major junior is too often a goon learning league. Look at the roster of most Ivy League schools. Yeah, they get free education after juniors at Canadian U’s if they choose, but going to school at 22 is not easy if they had sights set on a hockey career.

McGill and U of Toronto would have to join DII first for hockey to be eligible. The DII brand degrades those universities so much they wouldn’t go for it. Canadian U’s, especially high profile and research ones, have too much pride and national allegiance that they would not go NCAA unless rules change drastically Simon Fraser is the only Canadian school that actually applied for DII and they haven’t been invited to a US hockey conference yet.
